first of all felt nice looking at your feelings towards your friend.
as one of the ans. explaining pathophysiology is anyways posted ; why don't you only become her counselor ?? !!!

Explain her ; make her comfortable to share her feelings. give her a confidence so that she can learn "living with diabetes"!

balanced diabetic diet will certainly help in avoiding sugar fluctuations and further complication. this may even lower the dose of insulin.

So..... all the best.. to both of you !!

for any help / queries contact;

Diabetes is a disease that affects how the body uses glucose a sugar that is the body's main source of fuel. When you eat, Glucose from the food gets into your bloodstream, your pancreas makes a hormone called insulin, which helps the glucose get into the body's cells, and your body gets the energy it needs. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the pancreas fails to make enough insulin. Make sure she follows 3 things always.. DIABETIC DIET, regular EXERCISE, and most important of all.. daily INSULIN doses. She shuld not get her sugars going high as it will result in complications. Take her for a counselling so that she can come to terms with her disease condition.

Hi.I suggest that she should be taken to a good counsellor. As she is educated she only needs someone to give her a proper counselling so that she understands things herself. This is not the end of the world. There are so many motivating incidences where sportsmen of great repute have significant challenges. Provide her the motivation and things will fall in place.
